Lyrics

Last of the Cowboys

Written By: Andrew Plan

try to deny it, but i knew you then
shadows drawn from a texas sun
past and present in the light of your eyes
the future shaped in the curve of your arms

years pass, two wars apart
in chile, i found my cross to bear
you didn't want to hear it, you didn't let it show
"that man will take everything you know"

i don't regret that i don't belong
from dust i was made, and to dust i'll return
the last of the cowboys, giving up the fight
the last of us, fading from sight

tried to deny it, but i couldn't let you go
on old letterheads i held my breath
i put on my clothes, the last i would wear
for all that i tried couldn't break your stare

the day i left, you showed to say bye
the wrong kind of angel, those prideless eyes
"don't walk" you said, but how could i wait?
i'm not the man you came to defend

i don't regret that i don't belong
from ashes i'm made, and to ash i will burn
the last of the cowboys, giving up the fight
the last of us, fading from sight

don't make me say it
we're too late

suddenly i ran, but i didn't know why
i put down the cross, and i threw off the code
had everything to tell you, but you didn't care
one broken heart was all you could bear

i don't regret that i don't belong
from dust i was made, and to dust i'll return
the last of the cowboys, giving up the fight
the last of us, fading from sight

don't make me say it
we're too late
